8K Plex Library item Limit on Roku Devices

I've noticed that if I have a library that has over 8K (8196) items it gets truncated on any roku device. Like you only see A-P in the list when you browse all. Been like this for a long time. Anyone know of a fix? Running Plex Media Server on Linux Ubuntu distro.

    The limit on a grid screen is 10K due to memory limitations. Not sure why you are hitting it at 8K

    So is it a Plex recommendation to split the libraries at or before 10K?

    • Is this for Roku devices only or all Plex players?

    It only affects Roku. We are working on things to hopefully remove that limit for Roku but sorry no ETA.

    Ok cool. It might be 10K, A-P in my specific library goes to about 8k so i assumed that was it since thats a power of 2. My selection didn't include The _______ and A ______ titles so with those is about 10k. Good to know that is the cap though. Amazing I hard a hard time finding this info on the forums and google. Thanks.
